iPath S&P 500 VIX ST Futures ETN Message Board

  • stocktrader486 stocktrader486 Apr 3, 2012 10:36 AM Flag

    Bottom line if I was short VIX why join the trade this late?

    Did the seekingalpha writer mention potential margin calls on a short that ends up as a 300% loss and if you don't have the capital to maintain the short you get a margin call?

    Short this at a higher level... here it is simply not worth the risk... look at the chart... when has this gone below 15 range? It is trading a buck above that... is it worth shorting for a 5-15% gain when you could lose 100-300%?

    I don't think so buddy.
